India vs New Zealand: Daniel Vettori and Wasim Jaffer lavished admiration on the team. Ravindra Jadeja is being praised for a game-changing half-century in Kanpur. After opting to bat first, India put up a hefty 258-4. On Day 1 of the first Test against New Zealand. The innings could have gone anywhere when Ravindra Jadeja stepped out in the middle at 145-4. But he often diffused the situation initially before teeing off with regular boundaries. Also, to collect a 50* 100. In an ESPNcricinfo discussion, both Daniel Vettori and Wasim Jaffer were questioned if Jadeja should be promoted in India. Also, even if Rishabh Pant returns to the lineup, as a permanent top-six batsman. The former New Zealand spinner replied positively. Also, saying Ravindra Jadeja has shown “some real batsmanship” of late. Jadeja stressed that all teams saw him coming to bat. In the lower order will be on the backfoot considering his ability. Also, to be swashbuckling and even-kneeled according to the situation.
“I think I do… It’s because of the style that he’s playing. I think it’s always been the [common] knowledge that Jadeja is so talented but the style of the last year of Test match batting has shown that he has some real batsmanship. It isn’t just about scoring quickly, he assesses the situations as well as anyone now and he plays a role. I think a lot of teams see him come out at 6 or 7 and are going to be on the back foot because he’ll be swashbuckling and he’s going to take the game on,” Daniel Vettori said.
India vs New Zealand, Furthermore, Wasim Jaffer lacked Daniel Vettori’s confidence in the subject. On batting-friendly pitches, the former opener said he’ll consider the ‘risk.’ However, if the wicket offers bowlers assistance, I will avoid it.
“It depends on where we are playing. If the conditions are a little bit bowler-friendly then I would doubt that. But if the conditions are going to get easier to bat from Day 2, Day 3 then you can risk it because he has proved he can bat and score runs and he does that consistently. It’s not like he scores run just once in a series, he does it quite consistently so India can think of it when the conditions are right,” Jaffer said.
